Scarlet-winged lichen moth caterpillar - Hypoprepia miniata
Heritage Valley, Allamakee County, Iowa, USA
June 21, 2009
Looking back thru some old Bioblitz photos for another project, this caterpillar photo was recognized. Verified with Wagner's 'Caterpillars of Eastern North America'.
The moth was found at this location when black lighting the night before and previous years.
This is the first photo of this moth caterpillar for Bugguide.
